    Default Anyone experiencing redirects from the Links?

    Twice now over the last 2 days, while navigating through threads, I have been redirected to another site. The redirected site is blocked for me from work, so I can't see what it is. Has this happened to anyone else?

    It happened yesterday right after I clicked on a link in the Non forum. I thought maybe I clicked on an ad on the left side, so I didn't think much of it. Today, I was in the middle of reading the VH in Kandahar thread and I was suddenly redirected without me even clicking on anything.

    What's up with this?

    Conversely, it happened to me at work several times. At home, I'm running the Adblock Plus plug in along with No Script, so the redirects are not an issue.

    My work laptop has adblockers and popup blockers as well. This is a straight redirect to a different URL from within the Links. If it happens again, I'll capture the URL I am redirected to.

    I hear you, it was a site called "China-something", with an entirely different URL. I wound up closing the window and opening another to get back to the Links, as the back button return was useless. You could not escape the site otherwise.

    Yep. The back button didn't work. I had to close and open a new window also. Glad to hear it is not just me experiencing this!
